Creating a positive home environment is of the utmost importance for your well-being. Since your surroundings can affect your mood, causing even anxiety and depression, you should implement design elements and item that will help you create a more soothing, inspiring and energising atmosphere. Inviting positive energy to your home can be as simple as implementing these five positive embellishments.
First, create a fresh, clean base
Before adding specific details to your home, you should take some time to create a fresh, clean base. Not only will this allow your new embellishments to stand out, but it will also open up your home, make it healthier and more positive. Furthermore, according to Feng Shui principles, clutter hinders the flow of energy in one’s home. Thus, you should start by decluttering your space and removing unnecessary items. Decluttering may also have a cleansing effect on you because you’ll have an opportunity to remove all the items you don’t need or are broken.
During this step, you should also clean your home and check it for potential hazards that may affect your well-being. For instance, you should pay attention to mould and humidity levels in your home because they can fill it with an unpleasant smell and affect your indoor air quality, which will reflect on your state of mind, as well. Should you notice these problems in your living space, you should apply thorough mould removal measures or contact professionals who can help with this issue. Once you’ve finished cleaning and cleansing your home, you can implement different elements that will fill it with positive energy.
Introduce soothing greenery
As one of the most beautiful home embellishments, plants are the perfect choice for creating a positive home environment. They have a soothing effect, helping you relax and reduce stress. Furthermore, their enticing green hue can also fill your space with a sense of balance and harmony. And that’s not all! Plants also act as natural air purifiers by absorbing airborne toxins and releasing more oxygen. Thus, they will not only introduce a positive, natural vibe to your home, but they will also increase your indoor air quality, contributing to your health and well-being.
Install positive lighting
Lighting is another factor that can affect the atmosphere in your home. Inappropriate, dimmed lighting with an unflattering glow can make your home feel gloomy, small and cramped. Thus, you should definitely implement various lighting fixtures to your space, adding several sources of light. From pendants and wall sconces to floor and table lamps, there are plenty of chic solutions that will both illuminate your home and elevate its décor, creating a beautiful, intimate and mesmerizing atmosphere. Furthermore, if you switch to LED lights, you’ll create a much more positive atmosphere because LEDs have a similar glow to sunlight.
Decorate with inspiring artwork
Art can always evoke certain emotions in us, filling us with inspiration and affection. Introducing artwork to your home will not only style it up, creating a beautiful effect, but it will also bring a sense of positivity and inspiration. You can choose paintings that portray beautiful natural landscapes, captivating abstract shapes, etc. You can also introduce motivational and inspiring posters and other pieces that fill you with energy, creativity and positivity. Most importantly, you should use artwork that you find inspiring and captivating for the best effect.
Experiment with colourful details
Monochromatic spaces can seem boring and dull, making us feel lethargic. If your home features a subdued, slightly monotone colour scheme, you should introduce colourful details that will brighten up and energise your space. Furthermore, if you use colours according to Feng Shui principles, you’ll be able to bring different energies to your home. For instance, introducing pops of yellow can help you create a nourishing and happy vibe while orange details will fill your home with optimism. Adding pink items to your home can help you create a more soothing atmosphere. You can use particular colors for accent details, such as throw pillows, covers, lamps and other items that will stand out.
Use stunning mirrors
Mirrors can do wonders for a space, especially if used properly and strategically. For instance, they can help you maximize natural light in your home by reflecting it. They can also reflect a beautiful view outside your window and create a positive, stimulating effect. Mirrors can also visually expand your space, making it seem bigger and you feel less cramped in a small space. These beautiful additions are an important factor to consider when designing a home in tune with Feng Shui principles because it can help you ensure a great flow of energy.
After purifying your space and creating a clean, fresh base, you can introduce these stylish and mesmerizing elements that will embellish your home and fill it with positivity.
